    Best New York vinyl digger out there!


    I've for a long time been a huge Madteo fan. Have also been posting material about his releases earlier on the blog. For me personally I sort of either like one's dj skills or his/her producer skills. Madteo have both skills one could say. To the extreme. Of course there are many good dj/producers out there, but I rarely see people with this amount of digging skills or patience if you will. Collecting wax.

    If you're not familiar with who I am talking about Madteo or Matteo Ruzzon is out of North Eastern Italy and has been living in Queens, New York for something like 20 years doing house and techno. As a teenager going to numerous raves in local Italian town Remini he met up with fellow American dude who invited him to the USA. The rest is history. Before that he was doing a semester in California discovering reggae and dub. This was sort of a shape shifter within his musical preferences.

    I guess if I was to pinpoint what I like about his music that would be his ability to balance the mellow with the jolly. Major vs minor. There's a strong affection towards the darker and moodier textures. However, this combined with bits from disco, dancehall, soul, latin or whatever makes IMO his stuff quite special. Highly original.

    As you are able to hear in his sets and especially on his $TREET WAX series there has been a lot of digging putted this. You don't hear the usual house or techno stuff here. It's impressive how he's able to transfer some old, cheap records into something quite magical.
    This very set starts quite mellow, gradually turning into something like New York in the 70s. Give it a listen.
